I started a CAG bracket pool for anyone interested in entering. I posted the info in the College Hoops thread, but figured I'd put it in it's own thread as well to get more people to enter.

Here's the link and password:

OP, the traditional CAG March Madness is here http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=317164

(what a pain in the arse to find it)

I'm still going to sign up for this one as well though, so thanks for putting this together.

EDIT: all signed up!

Thanks for the link. I never check the contests/free stuff forum so I had no idea it was already up.

I only found the Tanuki's thread from him posting in the OTT.

With that being said, not sure if I'll do more than one bracket or not, but if nothing else, it would be easier to use this as a general march madness thread. Plenty of shaq-fus to go around I'm sure as well. (Especially if Syracuse wins it all).

Good idea. Edited the thread name. Doubt it will get much buzz anyway as the college basketball thread was pretty dead this year with just me and Chitown021 posting most of the time.

Anyway, here's some important tourney related news I just posted in that thread...


http://espn.go.com/m...ligible-tourney

Syracuse's Fab Melo is ineligible for the NCAA tourney. Huge loss as they struggled a bit without him (still won, but not nearly as dominate). I had them in the final four, but will have to reevaluate that pick now. I think there bracket is pretty weak though--but maybe OSU or FSU can knock them off in the elite 8 without Melo in the middle.

Son of a bitch, Syracuse is already a terrible rebounding team with Melo, they were even worse when he was out those 3 games earlier this year.

Cuse centers are cursed when it comes to being the number one seed in the Tourney. Onuaku was injured back in 2010 right before the tournament started and Syracuse lost to Butler in the Sweet 16. I expect Vandy to handle them at this point if they both make it that far. Vandy has good perimeter shooting and Syracuse will not handle the boards with Melo out.

Edit: Most analysts consider the East bracket a tough, if not the toughest, draw in the whole tournament.

Good God, did anyone see Western Kentucky come back and win against Mississippi Valley State?

That was one of the worst played games I've witnessed. By both teams.

I saw that at work. Makes me like my Syracuse pick even more. And by pick, I mean I have Kansas State knocking them off.

edit: ID in the bracket is the same ID I have here.

Syracuse survives 72-65.

Got some help from the refs late with a bad call on a lane violation and an out of bounds deflection.

UNC Asheville got completely screwed over in the last 3 minutes of that game. Just...wow.

Probably the worst officiating in a game I've seen since the Kings-Lakers series in 2002.

!San Francisco Giants 2010, 2012, and 2014 World Series Champions!

Just watched the replays, and good god. How much can you favor a team? That out of bounds deflection was one of the most blatantly blown calls I may have ever seen. I truly do feel bad for UNCA.

VCU knocks off Wichita State. Another of my sweet 16 goes down.

Had WVU losing to OSU in the next round, so at least my Alma Mater's turd of an effort doesn't hurt my bracket much.

Yea, I had Wichita State in the sweet 16 as well. So far its the only loss I have on my bracket on espn.

Well, UConn is getting crushed right now so there will be my second loss, but I had them losing to Kentucky anyways.

Went 11-5 yesterday. Lost two sweet 16 teams in my bracket (Long Beach State and Wichita State), the other three (UCONN, WVU, UNLV) I had going out in the next round.

I know I'm far from the only one who picked Belmont over Georgetown, but I still feel like an idiot for doing it.

I had a Duke-UNC final in an early version of my bracket. I'm glad I changed it to Duke losing to Baylor in the Sweet 16.
